How to upgrade DFS 7.2 to DFS 23.2

Options

Hi,

We have written custom DFS 7.2 code and we want to upgrade it to DFS 23.2.

How do I start upgrading?

Kindly help me with this.

    I guess you could start by re-compiling your code using the DFS 23.2 libraries as dependencies instead of the 7.2.

    If it compiles without error, it should work fine and if it doesn't compile, the errors you get should point you to where the code needs to be modified….

    As a starting point, you should probably read the release notes + checkout the Documentum System CE 23.2 - Upgrade and Migration Guide. There is a chapter on migrating DFS customizations.

    Hi Hicham,

    I have gone through the chapter 'migrating DFS customizations', but it only talks about DFS.NET. productivity layer.

    I have not understood how I will start upgrading my custom DFS code based on Java.

    I would appreciate it if you could guide me step by step.

    If nothing in the manual applies to your customisations, follow @Francois Dauberlieu 's suggestions : update dependencies and Java runtime and optionally fix any deprecated APIs.
